  1. Welcome Ruben! Thank you for trusting AP I hope you enjoy your armor Mark (AP)
  2. The AP kits come with 8mm rivets Mark (AP)
  3. We are talking about white plastic not painted, most makers including me use white gloss ABS plastic to make armors its not painted, not sure what acetone vapor polish process is but I know as a fact that Acetone on ABS plastic will ruin finish. Mark (AP)
  4. WHAT! not sure were you got that from NEVER use acetone base products on plastic will ruin finish, just simple car polish. Mark (AP)
  5. The movie suits were paper thin and small elastics would help keep back closed to a certain degree, but .80 gauge ABS theres way too much resistance elastics will be useless, keep it as is , you can see in then movie the back just opens up. Mark (AP)
  6. Instead of adding a clearcoat just polish the ABS using car buffing products, anything painted on ABS armor will eventually chip/flake off
  7. Per movie original you need to completely trim off the raised edges on both sides, the AP biceps are purposely made much bigger than the movie original to fit most, look at movie suit biceps they have pratically the same circumference as top of forearms.
  8. Your bicep look too big they should fit snug around biceps this will also help shoulder bells sit properly, AP biceps are bigger then original to accomodate most but to be movie size accurate you need to completely trim the raised areas on both sides and reapply strips of course if they will fit you that way but thats teh accurate look. Mark (AP)
  9. Those Td clips are way to wide and you can make frown hole on helmet bigger
  10. no need to trim, by looking at the gap at knee they look perfect
  11. I dont think you will need to trim top of thighs unless your under 5.8"
  12. Great job!!!! I would trim off the big tab on the rear of the shoulder straps, my shoulder straps are actually much longer to fit larger troopers if required, the movie original had no big tab on the rear. Mark (AP)
  13. Yes Actually my shoulder straps have a extra small tab and a big one for larger trooper.
  14. Look how small the belt cover caps should be, there's actually space on each side of the cap, IMHO this should be adressed like the AB buttons, I see many details less obvious than this being scrutanized
